Transformers: Dark of the Moon – The Album CD Review


Various Artists
Transformers: Dark of the Moon – The Album CD Review
(Reprise Records)

Don’t you just dig a good soundtrack? Transformers: Dark of the Moon –  The Album is certainly quite diggable! A vast array of artists offer their talent up for the soundtrack for the newest Transformers movie! I, admittedly, haven’t seen the movie yet, but I sure have been digging on the tunes on this soundtrack! 11 tracks from a diverse group of veteran talent like Goo Goo Dolls, Theory of a Deadman and Mastodon (majorly old school) to newcomers, Black Veil Brides and Art of Dying! You get a couple of soundtrack mainstays like Paramore and Linkin Park, as well as a couple of my personal faves in My Chemical Romance and Skillet! Read the rest of this entry

Sick Puppies
Live At the House of Blues Cleveland CD Review
(Virgin Records)

Having seen Sick Puppies in a live setting on many occasions, I was so psyched to find out they were releasing a live album! If you’ve ever seen the Puppies’ live show, you know exactly what I’m talking about! Full of energy, sonically exceptional, and wonderfully crowd-pleasing, guitarist/singer Shim Moore, bassist Emma Anzai, and drummer Mark Goodwin always give fans everything they want in a rock show! This trio is tight…on the mark with their music and absolutely on that stage for you, dear fan! This live album delivers blistering live performances of 8 of Sick Puppies’ most popular tunes!
